What happened to SiliconDust?

I was just about to pull the trigger on a HDHR5 Quatro until I discovered it was no longer compatible with my Samsung TV, and that buying any new HDHR model forces you into the Google or Amazon ecosystem if you want a hardware playback device.

The reason I'm in the market is that it looks like my HDHR3 was forcibly EOLed and my HDHR1 doesn't pick up enough channels without a good amplified antenna to compensate for the splitter (which I have but don't want to bother with setting up, thus my interest in a new model

Has anybody built a mythtv system with contemporary hardware? Looks like neither SiliconDust nor Hauppauge devices are completely supported any more.

There are many people in the USA and other countries using SiliconDust tuners with MythTV, but I am not familiar with compatibility in Albania.
